About the Event

Greater  Springfield's waterways are under the microscope. Dr David Manning will take  you to a nearby section of Opossum Creek where Springfield Lakes Nature Care  (SLNC) will undertake a Waterbug Blitz. 

David will collect several samples of  water for budding citizen scientists to work together to find waterbugs,   photograph & upload the images onto iNaturalist. Participants will be shown how to collect & identify waterbugs &   how to use the Waterbug Blitz App. Then you will have the skills you need to   do your own Waterbug Blitz at your local freshwater waterway! All the data will be uploaded to the Waterbug App but participants can photograph any of   their waterbug capture & upload their images to iNaturalist.

 SLNC will provide tea, coffee, cake & fruit for morning tea. 

This event is suitable for participants 13 years & over because we are participating in a water way.  

Please register via Eventbrite & find out more information about what you are required to bring on the day.

This event is hosted by Springfield Lakes Nature Care (SLNC).
